The Palebi is the ultimate sweet treat to whet any Desi appetite
Food blogger, Annem Hobson has devised an exceptional way to celebrate Pancake Day this 2016.
Taking her favourite childhood Desi treat of sumptuously syrup-filled jalebis, and her Western love of irresistibly fluffy pancakes, Annem has created the ultimate sweet treat to whet any Desi appetite.
Dubbed by Annem as ‘The Palebi’ on her food blog, So Wrong It’s Nom, the pancake jalebi combines the syrupy goodness of a Desi dessert with the fluffy cake texture of one of America’s favourite breakfasts.
A popular Indian and Pakistani mithai, jalebis are traditionally made with Maida flour or refined wheat flour, very similar to the one used in baking cakes.
The fine texture of Maida ensures a crispy outer texture and a hollow interior that is filled with liquid sugar once it has been deep fried.
The newly innovated ‘Palebi’ retains the fluffy pancake texture with a crispy exterior.
The addition of maple syrup is absorbed into the mix, giving the pancake an oozy centre.
To try Annem’s delicious Palebi treat for yourself, take a look at the recipe here:
You can find a full recipe and instructions on how to make ‘The Palebi’ on Annem’s food blog, So Wrong It’s Nom.
A great way to celebrate Pancake Day, or even as a Desi dessert for any special occasion, the Pancake Jalebi is a delicious treat you must try!
